Traditional Greek Villages

Greece has a rich history of tradition and culture. The Pelion Peninsula more so than some. Mythology reports it as the place the Greek Gods choose to gather for celebrations and home to centaurs roaming its lush slopes.

Tsagarada is one of the most traditional villages of Pelion, with grey stone roofs, elegant buildings, old churches and mule paths called kalderimi trails providing visitors with ready made walking paths to appreciate the setting and its effect on village life.
